Benromach 100° Proof
Benromach // Speyside, Scotland
This Speyside single malt is bottled without chill-filtering in the old imperial measure of 100° proof. "Proof" means 50% abv in the US and in the UK, it means 57% abv. This all goes back to the day and age where "proof" was questioned by sailors and their precious rum. Mixing some gunpowder with the rum and attempting to ignite the product would "prove" whether their rum was watered down or not. An ignition would verify its strength. Benromach 100° Proof is available in the UK and other markets outside the US, where it is sold as Benromach Imperial Proof.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
